History Buffs and Family Travelers love Boston, a perfect destination for a dip into the nation's history. The restaurant scene is also notable, not to mention Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox. Sea levels around Boston are rising fast, though - within 100 years, high tide could lap at the steps of City Hall.

Wellesley is an affluent suburb of Boston known mainly for the college of the same name located there. Located conveniently on the commuter rail, there are great restaurants and cute shops on the main street.

Home of more bank robbers than any other city! The movie "The Town" was based here, and you'll feel the unique culture here if you visit. The location is great, near downtown Boston and abutting the Mystic River.

I called this cute town my home for over a year and I love it. There's always something you can do here and in the surrounding towns. Best of all: It's just like 20 minutes away from Boston!

Somerville is a fun section of the Greater Boston area. Home to Inman, Porter, Teele, Ball, Magoun and Davis Squares; Somerville has a lot of small commerce centers for restaurants and shops. It is not always the easiest area to explore via public transport though... I highly recommend grabbing a car or biking to explore Somerville fully.

The city itself is a bit rough, with quite a crime problem and some really questionable areas. However, it also boasts great universities and the beautiful Lake Quinsigamond. If you come here, it is usually for a good reason, but hang on to your wallet!
